Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s strawweight contenders Rose Namajunas and Michelle Waterson will collide later tonight (Sat., April 15, 2017) at UFC on FOX 24 inside Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
At 24 years old, Namajunas has already challenged for the title and is proven as a top contender. Though she came up short in her last fight via split decision, “Thug” Rose is once again ready to push toward a showdown with Joanna Jedrzejczyk, making this a pivotal match for her.
On the other hand, few knew exactly what to expect from the much-ballyhooed Waterson. The former Invicta FC Atomweight champion did not have any particularly great wins at 115 pounds, but she’s impressed with consecutive finishes in her first pair of UFC bouts.
Check out their fight video preview above.
